If you've been around since 1858 then your reputation is likely pretty solid, but the Lonely Planet book got it right in naming this place as a top choice for visitors. It's an easy walk from the main square and atmospheric. You can get the...More

There's a lot of history in this quaint cafe and nothing about it disappointed. We stopped in for coffee and a pastry and both were spectacular. It's a great place to stop in if you want a break from wandering around Old Town.

This place has been around since 1858 apparently, but is still going strong.

Service is quick and courteous....More

I absolutely love this place. Friendly ambiance, good meals, lively colonial art pieces on display and great for a tight budget. What is not to love from this place? My favorites: the breaded sirloin, and the milk artisanal ice cream of "paila".

Heladería San Agustín is one of the Iconic places in Downtown Quito. You'll learn about some of the "Quiteños" culture, slang, and gastronomy. Food is nice and not very expensive (relative to international standards)

How's your Spanish? No bueno? Then if you really want to go here, you have one option: take a look inside. If you see an older fellow with a moustache running frentically about the place "serving" people, forget it. He will take over your table...More

I have been customer for 30 years. “Heladería San Agustín” is well located and offers for more than 150 years traditional local Ecuadorian dishes. San Agustín is a place where many locals go with their families to eat. In the last years, it has become...More
